Is my root partition dying?

I'd like to add that a mirror isn't a reliable backup; regardless of
that mirror being RAID, or scheduled synchronisation.
It may mitigate against data-loss in certain scenarios of catastrophic
hardware failure, but wont protect data from accidental (or intentional)
deletion, and/or file corruption.
I'm not sure how rsync handles reads with bad blocks; but with certain
flags (see --partial) it may also corrupt the target file?
